Eight families receive the gift of cooling, heating

Glendale, Ariz. — Over the past two months, Hobaica Services has given the gift of cooling and heating to eight deserving families living in metro-Phoenix and its surrounding communities.

The donations are part of the Hobaica Services’ BEGIN program, which stands for Business Entities Getting Involved in our Neighborhoods. Established in 2008, BEGIN asks local community members to nominate deserving families for an opportunity to receive a free cooling and heating system. In total the BEGIN program has given away and installed 23 units in the Phoenix area since 2008 at no cost to the homeowners.

Just this year, Hobaica has installed $49,500 worth of heating and cooling equipment with 136 hours of labor. The three-year projected value is just under $150,000 – at $148,380. The BEGIN program also challenges other local businesses to get involved in changing the lives of others. Businesses are asked to donate their time, supplies or other resources to make giving and installing the heating and cooling systems a reality.

This past year the following companies participated in the BEGIN program: The Trane Company, American Refrigeration Supply, Bud Carey Realtors, Emerson Climate Technologies, Empire Metal Products, Heating and Cooling Supply, Hercules Industries, Johnstone Supply, KG Group, Lennox Industries, ServPro of Glendale, Smiley Crane, Double D Services, KTAR FM.

Celebrating 60 years in business this year, Hobaica Services is a family-owned and operated since 1952 and specializes in cooling, heating and refrigeration, wine cellars and solar applications. All field technicians have laptops and access to the office throughout the day and quote flat rate billing-before the works begins. For more information call (602) 995-0387 or visit Hobaica.com
